It's my birthday!! Thanks to my lovely man for buying me some gorgeous butter gold patterned silk - I have visions of a beautiful Tudor gown. Come to think of it, he gave me some great red coton velvet last week (cos he didn't like the shade) that I was going to use to make a Jane Seymour Hans Holbeinish gown. So three Tudor gowns (to compliment existing black velvet Tudor that was my first ever project, mostly hand sewn except for bodice seams and boning channels eck). But then Tudor gowns are so lovely, especially the Henry VIII era ones.
